Patients increasingly perceive dentistry as a business, harming the credibility of the dentist’s recommendations [1,2,3,4]

How patients select their implant dentists?

select the right dental implant offer and right dental practice

Often, patients select their treatment providers through their family dentist, word-of-mouth from their relatives, or randomly by searching on the web. They do not know how to find an implant dentist matching their expectations.

With little access to comprehensive, independent dental implant information, patients often rely on commercial or implant industry sources. As a result, patients may not trust the information they receive and often struggle to understand how much the quality of dental implant treatments can differ.

With the rise of comparative websites, patients increasingly get a second offer. Since dental implants are complex and information is scattered, patients use (cheaper) price as their main selection criteria.

For patients to select a dental implant provider based on the quality of treatment, patient education and the perceived practice credibility become essential. Patients seeing the value of your treatment are less likely to look for cheaper alternatives.
